I can't tell you if this affects your setup since I have't seen the
You're going to tag then nat and then filter the packets. If any of
these steps you apply non-dynamic rules, that is you use $ext_if instead
of ($ext_if) for the ip address on the external interface, then you're
likely to have things behave unexpectedly.
Things suddenly stop working after weeks without problems, just sounds
very much like your firewall setup doesn't follow changes of the
interface configuration. Without knowing the details of your setup, I
can't tell you much more.
What also confuses me is that you have tags in your nat rules - you
might add a tag for later use in filtering, but you also check if a tag
exist, and I don't know how or where this is set.
